I've created my FIRST PERSONAL WEBSITE using Ghost

34% of all websites on the internet are powered by WordPress.

Yet, I preferred to go with Ghost 👻 for my personal website.

Here's why. 😁

  1. At our company, we use WordPress to publish our articles. We're using it for a long time. And I needed a change.

  2. Ghost is so clean, faster, and easy to use.

  3. Built-in SEO features [Sitemap, AMP, Structured Data, etc.]

  4. Perfect for bloggers

  5. Minimalistic user interface

  6. Easy to create and publish content

  7. Integrating third-party tools like Google analytics are so easy.

But...🤔

Every platform has its own pros and cons, right?

In my time of using Ghost, I faced some challenges,

  1. Theme customization is a bit tricky. [As I'm not a developer]

  2. You can't create a full-fledged website other than blogs.

  3. And a bit expensive. [But if you really wanna learn something new, just go for it]

Do you have your personal website?

P.S: I've posted the first article on my website about using and customizing the Ghost theme. Appreciate your feedback.
